Crocodile and Alligator were best friends who resided in a quaint valley community. While Alligator was known for his strength and dependability, the crocodile was revered for his sly pranks and quick wit. For as long as anyone could remember, these two were inseparable, sticking by one other through good times and bad.
While taking a trip through the village one day, Crocodile and Alligator happened upon a group of children having fun by the river. All the kids were having a blast, but Crocodile and Alligator could tell that one of the girls was having a hard time keeping up. She was losing her footing and getting further behind, but nobody appeared to mind.
A plan occurred to Crocodile, who is, after all, the more astute of the two. Alligator nodded in agreement as he muttered something to him. They went over to the girl as a group, and offered to help her join in on the game with the other kids. The girl was hesitant at first, but Crocodile and Alligator were so nice and polite that she gave in.
Together, the two friends spent the remainder of the afternoon making the little girl laugh and feel welcome. It was only a matter of time before it was time to go home, what with all the games and jokes they had been playing. The girl gave a bear embrace to Crocodile and Alligator as the kids waved goodbye and thanked them for being such excellent friends.
Crocodile and Alligator resolved then and then to help those in need whenever possible. They did everything they could to aid others, whether it was a small favor or a major one. And when they did their good works, they discovered they were more content and happy than ever before.
Our lives are enriched when we give to others, and this is the lesson to be learned from this tale. We can change the world by simply being there for one another, just like crocodiles and alligators.
What is the difference between Crocodile and Alligator?
Large reptiles like crocodiles, caimans, and gharials are all related to one another in the crocodilian family. However, the two species do not share every trait.
The snouts of these two species couldn't be more different from one another. Both crocodiles and alligators have snouts, although alligators' are shorter and wider than crocs'.
While their jaws may be closed, crocodiles nevertheless display their sharp canine teeth to the world. In contrast, when an alligator closes its mouth, only the upper front teeth are exposed.
Alligators have eyes that are lower and partially covered by bony ridges, while crocodiles' eyes are higher and more visible.
Lastly, crocodiles are typically located in tropical areas, while alligators are indigenous to the southeastern United States and China.
